Sleeper sofas are very popular, and with good reason. They provide you with a comfortable and fashionable place to sit, while at the same time giving your guests a place to sleep when needed. The advantages of a sleeper couch are well known and documented, and more and more people are turning to them when it comes time to buy a sofa. Where people run into problems with sleeper sofas is when they have either a small space for the sofa, or a difficult pathway such as a tight corner or hallway. An extra small door frame can literally eliminate a regular sized sleeper sofa. Fortunately, there are some super high quality options for small sofa sleepers that work beautifully, and provide all the same benefits as a full size sofa.
Wrapping a sofa bed for moving with moving blankets requires some skill and experience. Sofas, and especially sofa-beds, are bulky and heavy furniture. If you do not have experience, wrapping a sofa bed with moving blankets it is probably better left for professional household movers on the move day. On the other hand, a Quilted Sofa Cover can easily be used for moving a couch, and then reused to cover a sofa for long term storage, protection from dirt, dust, pet claws, fading from sun exposure, etc. Regular sofas normally do not present much of a challenge, because even though they are large - they are light-weight, but a large heavy sofa-bed might cause you trouble on the move day.
Small sofa sleepers are just as comfortable as full sized sofas and in many cases, are even more comfortable. The best part is, you are still getting the benefits of the small sofa - more flexibility, space and decorating options. You also will be virtually guaranteed of fitting your small sofa sleeper into even the smallest of spaces. Small sofa sleepers are here to stay and will likely be the wave of the future in guest bedding. Before you purchase your next sofa sleeper, be sure to check out the small sofa options first. You will be very much surprised at the incredible innovation and quality in today`s small sofa sleepers, and almost certainly will fall in love with the prices. There is simply no reason to be uncomfortable with small sleeper sofas any longer.
After acknowledging the right size of the sofa, you need to have a frame check. The frame of that sofa should be sturdy and strong. The frames are generally made of either wood, metal or plastic. If it is made up of wood, then ensure that it is made up of solid wood. The sofa should not wobble on the corners. You also need to check how the edges of the frame are held together. They should not be glued but attached with the help of screws and bolts. This will make the joints stronger and more reliable.
But there are those people too, who need some strong reasons to overcome their temptations towards the very formal leather sofas and take a leap of faith to choose an upholstered one, which can enliven their living room. Therefore, take a read of the following top reasons to buy a fabric sofa right today:
Now stand the sofa up on its side and wrap across in at least three sections: right over the armrests, and in the middle. For very long sofas make two midsection bands to catch the edges of the side blankets. Fold the excess of the moving blankets over the bottom. (There is no need to cover the whole bottom, unless you want to, but it is important to cover the corners.) Remove the legs, if removable. If legs cannot be removed - wrap and tape the moving blanket around the legs of the sofa-bed. Flip the sofa and do the same for the other side.
